Chain Reaction – Dance Freak
Tuesday, July 12th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Chain Reaction – Dance Freak

Image: 1605112 A bonafide dancefloor invitation, this classic cut by Chain Reaction was originally released in 1980 on the
P&P affiliate label, Sound Of New York. A project between keyboardist Dwight Brewster (of The Imperials)
and percussionist Harold Sargent (of Wood, Brass & Steel fame) Dance Freak provides one finest moments in
the entire catalog. A funky disco track with all the elements of a party anthem, it’s no surprise it’s been a
favorite of veteran Deejays like Kenny Dope and Danny Krivit.
There are many reasons why this track is a must-have for Disco DJs. Outstanding percussions, check. Funky
Guitar & Bass lines, check. Catchy chorus, check. Brass accents, very welcomed. Using a synth as a
percussive instrument, incredible and most likely lifted from the Patrick Adams Handbook “How to make a
hit record”.

There really isn’t much more we can say here. We “just wanna Dance with you…” Available from 05.08.2016

Mega Ryan & Storyville – React
Saturday, February 7th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Mega Ryan & Storyville – React

Image: 1595232 SIDE A – REACT (PRODUCED BY STORYVILLE) // SIDE B – ANOTHER WORLD (PRODUCED BY CIGADEEMUS) /

The first single of the Mega Ran & Storryville ‘Soul Veggies’ project, “React” is the Soul Veggies’ tribute to jazzy
B-Boy anthems like “Don’t Sweat The Technique,” with a slick 2015 twist. The track is guaranteed to cause a
raucous reaction from dive bars to festivals, with a taste of 1990’s hip-hop bravado (“This is creation, not
Kreayshawn”) and the downright silliness (“I’m crazy in the cranium, maybe, I’m crackin’ up/Or maybe I got
mania baby, I’m friggin nuts!”) that you’ve come to expect from the duo of Ran and Story.
“I pictured b-boys popping and locking to this all over the place, doing the most outlandish moves” says Ran. “I
always think it’s important near the beginning of a new project to let people know that despite the changes,
nothing has changed.” Story adds. This is what “Soul Veggies” is: two guys who know their roots, but aren’t afraid
to turn the heat up and take it to another level. React. Move, don’t hold back the motion.
The b-side is an unreleased Soul Veggies track, not available on the album, entitled “Another World.” It is a fun
story, loosely based on the hit Super Nintendo game “Out Of This World,” released in 1992, which is all about a
man’s journey to a strange world where he encounters danger and an alien friend. In the song, both Ran and
Story venture to another dimension due to Story placing Plutonium into a microwave — yeah, it gets weird.
The two encounter warp zones, death rays and and 12-eyed space aliens in this rap tribute to classic cheesy
Sci-Fi flicks.
The track is produced by London native Cigadeemus, who Ran met on his latest UK tour. The two became really
close and decided to work on some music, which was completed after the Soul Veggies project was finalized, so
the track rematerializes as a bonus b-side on the “React” single. Available from 03.04.2015

Mario Rusca Trio – Reaction
Thursday, May 9th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Mario Rusca Trio – Reaction

Image: 1577186 Fantastic and rare debut LP of Italian jazz pianist as first re-release, recorded 1974 at the Fontana Studio in Milan for the small label Dynia World. Trio featuring Mario Rusca (piano), Franco Cerri`s son Stefano Cerri (electric bass) and Gianni Cazzola (drums). Fascinating Modern Jazz & Post-Bop album with shimmering sound colours and unique versions of Ron Carter’s “First Trip”, Monk’s “Straight No Chaser” or “Blue In Green” and “Waltz For Debby” by Bill Evans. Newly mastered for superior sound, with original artwork and sleeve notes as a 6-Page Digi-CD / Limited Vinyl LP / Download.

Mario Rusca made the first experiences years ago with a lot of performances in trio. From 1971 to 1974 Mario had a long collaboration with the famous violinist Joe Venuti. “Reaction”, finally reissued by Sonorama Records on CD/ LP/ DIGITAL, is his first album produced by Dynia World Records in 1974, performed with Franco Cerri`s son Stefano Cerri (el-b) and Gianni Cazzola (dr) – a long forgotten but definitely outstanding and fascinating modern jazz & post bop LP.

Original sleeve notes by Franco Fayenz (1974):

Jazz in Italy is about to rocket like a whizz kid, thanks mainly to the young crowd that is admiring the rock-tinged side of Black America’s music. Italy’s own jazz production though, is still caught in quite serious problems. For a considerable amount of time the in-crowd critics have determined the reasons behind these problems. They can be summarized as follows: a delayed start in comparison to other European countries, the scarce musical education in Italy, the indifference of mass media, but also the hurtful behaviour of certain journalists, who are always willing to mention that the worst Jazz in the whole of Europe is played in Italy.

Rather, it is true that the really good Italian Jazz musicians are few, which is easy to understand by looking at what it says above. It is not very likely for musicians to step back and to live like ascetics to be able to play Jazz. On the other hand, to play Jazz as a part-time occupation and having to share it with playing light music or other activities, inevitably sets limits. Jazz needs practice, one needs to work with it on a daily basis, making it become a habit. In order to reach this level of intimacy, one needs to have a well-defined cultural background and a solid awareness of the direction things are going to in our times.
That this is the first release by the courageous pianist Mario Rusca, born in Turin in 1937, and thus not that young anymore, can only be explained (and not justified) by circumstances such as described above. But there’s more to it. Though I really strive to support Italian Jazz and to discover new talents, often by going against the tide, I hadn’t yet heard the name of Mario Rusca three years ago. It was Joe Venuti who introduced me to him in the spring of 1971, while he was staying in Milan for some time. Venuti had arrived in Italy together with pianist Lou Stein, and he didn’t have any difficulties in finding good double-bass players and drummers to play with him. A problem aroused though when Stein decided to go back to the States alone. The search for a new pianist proved to be more difficult, but the old violinist finally spotted a shy and reserved person, who at the time was playing at the Capolinea every night, a club which can be found in an outlying district of Milan. That was Mario Rusca.

The first time I had the opportunity to listen to him was during a concert of Venuti at La Fenice in Venice taking place on May 9th, 1971. I was especially impressed by his musical craftsmanship as well as his rich and bright ideas. His style was evidently not oscillating between traditional and classic as the collaboration with Venuti might have indicated. He rather knew how to adapt himself to those styles. On the other hand he was able to define his own style, which is more modern, highlighting an enviable technique, and combining that certain something of a soloist and a confident taste. Since then, there have been numerous occasions where I had the chance to review Mario Rusca’s skills at the Jazz Power Club in Milan. He performs as solo artist, but also accompanies famous American musicians touring Italy. His collaboration with American singer Bunnie Foy who compelled him to spontaneously change between spirituals, Flamenco and Modern Jazz, can be named as one example.

Time after time, I finally convinced myself that Mario Rusca, apart from his rare and precious eclecticism, is one of Italy’s best pianists, who is well-positioned in the world of “melodico-armonico” even prior to contemporary Jazz. But he for sure is modern. And that’s why I didn’t hesitate at all when Enrico Dynia some months ago asked me to recommend an Italian solo pianist who was able to record an outstanding long player. I had about three or four names in mind, but it was Rusca who deserved to be the first. I’m convinced that those who have not yet had the chance to admire him, will be puzzled to learn what kind of undiscovered talents the Italian Jazz scene still has to offer.

When Rusca was asked to do this important recording session, he chose to collaborate with Gianni Cazzola and Stefano Cerri. And it was a good choice. The drummer Gianni Cazzola has been on the forefront of things for about 20 years, and there’s no need to introduce him to anyone. Just listen to the tracks to discover his sobriety and precision in playing, the interaction with his co-musicians and his sense of security with which he inspires Rusca and sets him in the right pace to open up the path to fantasy. Only on the last track of Side 1, Rusca is playing solo piano.

Stefano Cerri, 22-year old double-bass player and son of Franco, a guitarist well-known to all Italian and European Jazz fanatics, is the second son of an artist of our Jazz scene. The other one is the pianist Gaetano Liguori. I really hope that this series will continue. On this note, I just wanted to emphasize Stefano Cerri’s privileged position: he has been listening to Jazz at home from the day he was born, he received musical education from his father, and he learnt his profession by playing electric bass in various Rock and Modern Jazz outfits. He has been acknowledged for his energy, the intelligence and his means to immediately capture various situations. There’s no doubt that the future will bring him publicity and success.

Biographical data:
In 1976 Mario plays in tour with Gerry Mulligan and is chosen for representing Italy in Piano Solo at the International Festival of Warsaw. Mario Rusca performs his sounds with a lot of great musicians like: Chet Baker, Al Gray, Tony Scott, Art Farmer, Lou Donaldson, Curtis Fuller, Bob Berg, Kay Winding, Jimmy Owens, Toot’s Thielemans, Kenny Clarke, Stan Getz, Steve Lacy, Steve Grosmann, Eddie L. Joe Davis, Dusko Goykovic, Pepper Adams, Lee Konitz, “Mario Rusca & Lee Konitz” (CD), ” Where’s blues”, Franco Ambrosetti, Gianni Basso, Francis Coletta, George Robert, Enrico Rava, Woody Shaw.

The Mario Rusca Quintet won “The Cup of the Jazz Award” in 1984, organized by Adriano Mazzoletti on air in National Channel RAI Radio Stereo 1. They had a lot of performances in Europe and a great ovation at the International Jazz Festival of Montreal. Acutally Mario is an appreciated teacher of Piano at the SMUM school of Jazz Music in Lugano and at the Civic School of Jazz in Milan. Most recently available is “Speak Low”, his last studio work in trio with Riccardo Fioravanti (Cb) and Stefano Bagnoli (Dr). Actually this trio is performing live.

Mr. Rusca has composed the music and served as a music director for the films: “La droga è vita?!” (1988-1990) by Umberto Baretto “Electoral Debate” (1995),”IO-Giuseppe Renzini” (1989-2003), “Algonchini” (1999) by Marco Rusca. He has composed the music and served as a music director for the theatrical production of “Noemi” (1991), written by Juan Carlos Malpelli (Art Director). He also worked for The Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute (Los Angeles).

Washed Out – Mister Mellow
Wednesday, July 5th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Washed Out – Mister Mellow

Image: 1610780 Mister Mellow moves further away from the synthesizer-heavy
sounds of the recent Washed Out releases and more band-driven
sound of his work on iconic labels Sub Pop in America, and Domino
in Europe. On Mister Mellow, Greene draws from the experimental
collage techniques of musique concrète and plunderphonics
artists such as The Residents. Combining styles as diverse as
free jazz, house, hip-hop and psych together with interlude-esque
voiceover samples, often pulled from anonymous YouTube vlogs,
he creates a busy, chaotic, and caricaturish mix that mirrors the
claustrophobic, hyper-stimulated psyche so familiar to young adults.
As he continues to carve out his innovative sonic identity,
influenced by the world around him but unafraid to buck trends,
it’s fitting that Greene has partnered with legendary hip hop label
Stones Throw Records, long a home for beat-loving musical
rebels. His approach to releasing music is every bit as individual,
too: in an environment where compiling singles into an album
format or working with a single video director are the norm,
Greene has chosen to commission eleven different artists to
bring the visual aspect of his fully-realised album project to life.
On Mister Mellow, Washed Out steers clear of emotion to empathise
with the minutiae of the world around him. “I’ve been much less
interested in sentimentality and emotion for the past couple of years,”
says Greene, “In some ways, I think its a reaction against getting
older and having more responsibilities. Maybe I’m just nostalgic for
a time in my life where I could just relax and block out the world for
a moment.” Though Mister Mellow is an intensely personal album,
its ideas and observations speak to the lived experience of so many
young adults, an experience that we come to see as both funny
and sad.

Henrik Schwarz and !K7 are proud to announce a collaboration that will bare many different musical fruits. The first of these is a brand new label called Between Buttons, curated by Henrik and focused on acoustic sounds and contemporary compositions. Between Buttons will be in partnership with !K7’s own neo-classical hub 7K!, and will kick off with a new mini LP by Schwarz entitled Works Piano, followed by an EP entitled Aphorisms by Syrian artists Khaled Kurbeh & Raman Khalaf Ensemble.
Mixing up old and new technologies, experimental and more classical approaches, the label will see Schwarz forge new paths in his own work, as well as curating material from the peers he has worked with over the last 15 years. Mainly made up of acoustic sounds, piano, string quartets, self-built instruments, percussion and intriguing classicist elements with a modern twist, there will be EPs from piano virtuoso Bugge Wesseltoft, as well as other electronic producers wanting to show themselves in a different, more ‘unplugged’ light. “In these times of constant turbo mode, likes and thumbs-up, we need to go back to basics,” says Henrik. “We want to move away from the idea that relentless hasty productivity is a must, and instead take time to create space, to let ideas mature and to focus the mind on subtler sounds.”
Works Piano will be a four track mini album that uses a Yamaha Disklavier as the starting point and reimagines it, reworks it and alters it with various digital and recording technologies. One track is a created with a reactive algorithm and one is composed purely from altered and processed piano sounds. Available from 30.06.2017

Lee Fields & The Expressions – Special Night (Instrumentals)
Tuesday, February 7th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Lee Fields & The Expressions – Special Night (Instrumentals)

Image: 1608617 The instrumental version of the instant classic Special Night by Lee Fields & The Expressions.
There are a few terms that get thrown around loosely, two of which are legend and retro-soul. One of these fits Lee Fields hand and glove, one of these doesn’t fit at all. Very few people in music have both earned the status of legendary and continue to solidify it. 50 years in the game and only getting better, gaining more fans, and evolving his sound on each album, Lee is in fact a Living Legend.
This brings us to the misuse of the term “retro-soul” when talking about Mr. Fields. You don’t have to look far to find a younger generation emulating the essence and styles of an era the’ve only experienced through music and movies. It seems unfair to tag Lee with a term that implies imitation when he is part of the generation that actually defined the genre. Plain and simple, this is not that.
“Special Night” is a masterclass in soul music past and present.
“I feel that every human being’s purpose is to do what their inner voice says to do,” says Lee Fields. “And my inner voice, my driving force, wants me to put out music and keeping making better records.”
Produced by Leon Michels and Thomas Brenneck, and brilliantly performed by the Expressions, Special Night was written, recorded, mixed, and mastered entirely to tape in three weeks at the legendary Diamond Mine Studios in Queens, NY. A sense of urgency, equal parts fun and inspiration, and a decent amount of beer and Jack Daniels were the driving forces during the sessions that produced Lee Fields & The Expressions latest offering.
Special Night is also the first record in the Expressions catalogue in which every song was written jointly by Lee Fields and The Expressions. “When I record, I make every song like I actually mean it. I mean every word I say. On Special Night I’m talking to my lady — literally, expressing the way I feel.” says Lee Fields. “You can tell if a song is real or not, and every moment I’m recording, those moments are real, this is a record about what people do in real life”. For one example, he cites the song “Work to Do,” which tells the story of “a guy going to counseling, drinking too much, apologizing to the old lady and trying to keep family together, doing the manly thing.” On “Make This World”, Lee makes a nod back to his early funk roots with a cautionary tale about the health of the planet.
The world was designed to last indefinitely,” says Fields. “We’re the only living species on Earth who can alter that process. I’m hoping that song has a chain reaction, helps somebody put into action whatever contribution they can to change what the world is going through.” As always, sticking to the formula but pushing the boundaries “Never Be Another You” from the first note doesn’t sound like something you would hear on a Lee record, that is until he starts singing anyhow. A low tempo ballad with a head nodding drum track, sparse piano lines, and all the space Lee needs to lay down what is sure to be one of the flyest love songs of 2017.
Whether tackling a tune about love lost, found, or broader topics like the state of humanity, Lee has a very unique and honest perspective that is on display with each unforgettable performance. Also, The Expressions have never been sharper, they, along with Lee, have created a collection of music on Special Night which holds court with pretty much any soul music that came before it.

In May 1976 a record was released that would have an unforeseen and lasting impact on the music industry “Ten Percent” by Double Exposure was an early release on the New York independent label Salsoul Records. America was in the grip of a disco explosion with new clubs opening on a weekly basis, Salsoul saw what was happening and swiftly created a sound for their label, heavily influenced by the music then coming out of Philadelphia, aimed directly at New York’s dance-floors. Records like “Salsoul Hustle,” “Tangerine” and “You’re Just The Right Size” by The Salsoul Orchestra borrowed heavily from the beautifully orchestrated Philadelphia International records but added a more percussive, bass heavy depth that New York’s DJs loved. So what was so special about this particular single then? Double Exposure was, after all, just another band, “Ten Percent” just another song, one of many “disco” records released that week. First of all Salsoul became the first record label to make a twelve inch single available to Joe Public – the exotic format was previously only available to DJs as promotional items or bought under the counter at certain record stores. Not only that though, the extended version was created by Walter Gibbons, a DJ at New York’s Galaxy 21 who’d built his reputation making exclusive versions of tracks to play in his sets. In 1976 it was unheard of for a DJ to set foot in a recording studio, being seen as little more than living jukeboxes by the serious music industry. Recording studios were strictly the domain of recording artists and producers so Walter found himself in a unique position, gaining access to a world no DJ had been granted before. Or so we thought…
The Men In The Glass Booth tells the full story. Featuring ground breaking re-edits and remixes by some of the Disco era’s most influential DJs including Walter Gibbons, Bobby DJ Guttadaro, Tom Savarese, Jellybean Benitez, Tee Scott and John Luongo, this opulent release also includes a 40 page book which features exclusive photos and insights from some of the story’s key figures.

Key Selling Points:
– Full Press, radio & online campaign (to include google ads face ads & boosts)
– Package contains previously unissued versions of classic tracks by pioneering DJs of the disco era)
– Vinyl box 1 contains 40 page coffee table book telling the story of the DJ as remixer and featuring previously unseen vintage photographs, vinyl box 2 contains marvelous vintage style poster. Available from 27.01.2017

Not only that though, the extended version was created by Walter Gibbons, a DJ at New York’s Galaxy 21 who’d built his reputation making exclusive versions of tracks to play in his sets.
In 1976 it was unheard of for a DJ to set foot in a recording studio, being seen as little more than living jukeboxes by the serious music industry. Recording studios were strictly the domain of recording artists and producers so Walter found himself in a unique position, gaining access to a world no DJ had been granted before.
Or so we thought…
The Men In The Glass Booth tells the full story. Featuring ground breaking re-edits and remixes by some of the Disco era’s most influential DJs including Walter Gibbons, Bobby DJ Guttadaro, Tom Savarese, Jellybean Benitez, Tee Scott and John Luongo, this opulent release also includes a 40 page book which features exclusive photos and insights from some of the story’s key figures.

Key Selling Points:
– Full Press, radio & online campaign (to include google ads face ads & boosts)
– Package contains previously unissued versions of classic tracks by pioneering DJs of the disco era)
– Vinyl box 1 contains 40 page coffee table book telling the story of the DJ as remixer and featuring previously unseen vintage photographs, vinyl box 2 contains marvelous vintage style poster. Available from 27.01.2017

Pete Rock & CL Smooth – They Reminisce Over You/Straighten It Out
Tuesday, December 13th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Pete Rock & CL Smooth – They Reminisce Over You/Straighten It Out

Image: 1607821 “Only a few people have ever changed the way that records are made. Pete Rock is one of them,” veteran hip-hop A&R man and producer
Dante Ross told Brian Coleman in the book Check the Technique Vol 1. “People like Pete change the sound palette for the whole world.
He had a signature sound, and that’s so hard to get.”
It is a tall boast, but it’s backed up two different ways: by fans of the group from back in the ‘90s who knocked each other over in record
stores to get the latest Pete Rock production, and by record buyers today, who still hear the same freshness in the group’s sound that
people did more than two decades ago.
These two songs are taken from the group’s legendary first full-length from 1992, Mecca & The Soul Brother. Originally, both were their
own 12-inch singles, but for this special, first-time-ever 7-Inch release, they are paired together.
“They Reminisce Over You” – a tribute to their late friend Trouble T-Roy (a member of Heavy D’s crew) – is one of the most beloved
hip-hop tracks of the ‘90s, and rightfully so. Grooving very deeply over a filtered bassline and a now-ingrained Tom Scott saxophone riff
(“Today”), CL Smooth lives up to his moniker, weaving various tales and lessons about family and friends. His status as a storytelling
MC remains underrated, but here it remains proudly on display.
“Straighten It Out,” although not the runaway smash that “They Reminisce” was, is equally emotional and soulful. Again over a
mid-tempo groove, and again with Pete’s trademark warm horn samples, CL explained in Check the Technique, “On [part of] the song, I
was talking about sampling, and I was basically reacting to how everything was such a procedure when you had to clear stuff. They didn’t
seem to care about how their music affected anyone else, they just wanted money. So it was just something that needed to be
straightened out. Older artists thought that us younger cats were ripping them off, but it wasn’t like that. It was a tribute.”
So here’s the math: one classic hip-hop group, two memorable singles, one killer 7-Inch. Case closed. Available from 20.01.2017

Lee Fields & The Expressions – Special Night
Saturday, September 24th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Lee Fields & The Expressions – Special Night

Image: 1606607 There are a few terms that get thrown around loosely, two of which are legend and retro-soul. One of these fits Lee Fields hand and glove, one of these doesn’t
fit at all. Very few people in music have both earned the status of legendary and continue to solidify it. 50 years in the game and only getting better, gaining more
fans, and evolving his sound on each album, Lee is in fact a Living Legend. This brings us to the misuse of the term “retro-soul” when talking about Mr. Fields.
You don’t have to look far to find a younger generation emulating the essence and styles of an era the’ve only experienced through music and movies. It seems
unfair to tag Lee with a term that implies imitation when he is part of the generation that actually defined the genre. Plain and simple, this is not that. “Special
Night” is a masterclass in soul music past and present.
“I feel that every human being’s purpose is to do what their inner voice says to do,” says Lee Fields. “And my inner voice, my driving force, wants me to put out
music and keeping making better records.”
Produced by Leon Michels and Thomas Brenneck, and brilliantly performed by the Expressions, Special Night was written, recorded, mixed, and mastered
entirely to tape in three weeks at the legendary Diamond Mine Studios in Queens, NY. A sense of urgency, equal parts fun and inspiration, and a decent amount
of beer and Jack Daniels were the driving forces during the sessions that produced Lee Fields & The Expressions latest offering.
Special Night is also the first record in the Expressions catalogue in which every song was written jointly by Lee Fields and The Expressions. “When I record, I
make every song like I actually mean it. I mean every word I say. On Special Night I’m talking to my lady — literally, expressing the way I feel.” says Lee Fields.
“You can tell if a song is real or not, and every moment I’m recording, those moments are real, this is a record about what people do in real life”. For one example,
he cites the song “Work to Do,” which tells the story of “a guy going to counseling, drinking too much, apologizing to the old lady and trying to keep family
together, doing the manly thing.” On “Make This World”, Lee makes a nod back to his early funk roots with a cautionary tale about the health of the planet. The
world was designed to last indefinitely,” says Fields. “We’re the only living species on Earth who can alter that process. I’m hoping that song has a chain reaction,
helps somebody put into action whatever contribution they can to change what the world is going through.” As always, sticking to the formula but pushing the
boundaries “Never Be Another You” from the first note doesn’t sound like something you would hear on a Lee record, that is until he starts singing anyhow. A
low tempo ballad with a head nodding drum track, sparse piano lines, and all the space Lee needs to lay down what is sure to be one of the flyest love songs of
2017.
Whether tackling a tune about love lost, found, or broader topics like the state of humanity, Lee has a very unique and honest perspective that is on display with
each unforgettable performance. Also, The Expressions have never been sharper, they, along with Lee, have created a collection of music on Special Night which
holds court with pretty much any soul music that came before it.

Jane Weaver – The Amber Light
Thursday, June 9th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Jane Weaver – The Amber Light

Image: 1604540 When a handful of broadsheet music columns and reputable blog pages began to mention the vaguely familiar name Jane Weaver in the “Here’s One We Missed” themed features during 2014s end of year round-ups it became quickly apparent that the singer’s concept album The Silver Globe had already independently garnered a “must have” status amongst virtually any self-respecting music buyers. But unlike so many other big label “campaigns” that vied for PR attention via ego-fuelled video promos and down your throat advertising, this unassuming, dedicated, focused piece of experimental female vocal pop was in no way spoon fed to editors nor playlisters. Nor did it fall within the lines of what might have been considered fashionable or culturally relevant. The Silver Globe defied species, and for once, was judged on its own merit as a brilliant uncompromising pop record. The sixth album by a long-standing pillar of the North West music scene (loosely based on a lost Polish dystopian feature film and a French novella featuring a personnel of vintage Atari music composers next to Australian synth pioneers) was a simply typical product of the way Jane Weaver has always operated – as an independent and resilient female experimental songwriter, on her own label, on the outskirts of anything that resembles a music industry. Throughout her twenty-year “career” she has stayed focused, avoided whimsical fads and distractions and used her experience to work as hard as she can when she can. By Christmas The Silver Globe had been announced as Piccadilly Records’ best album of the year, earned a “worldwide” top ten track of the year accolade by Gilles Peterson, gleaned across the board full-stars and thumbs up from the music press, benefitted unanimous repeat plays from virtually every specialist DJ on BBC6 Music (amongst many more global radio stations), found DJ mix support from Andrew Weatherall, and filled most of the pages in a twelve month diary with gig and festival requests. Meanwhile, Jane’s own Bird Imprint (via Finders Keepers) has to worked around the clock to keep up with stock demands of her new (and old) music. Album collaborators such as David Holmes, Andy Votel and BC Camplight share gushing pride in the project and with this unanimous critical support (and long earned respect) Jane has reacted in the only way she knows best – to keep creating.

In March, barely six months since its initial release, following tours with friend and sonic sister figure Laetitia Sadier (Stereolab) and one time backing band Black Rivers (two thirds of Doves), Jane will release an expanded edition of The Silver Globe – including a second full-length disc called The Amber Light which follows the original LP with the same dedication and adventurous zeal as its much loved synth driven sister record. With a title that alludes to the toils of trepidation and a running theme of industrial procreativity and DIY handy craft, The Amber Light carves a niche between new age motivational music, radiophonic folk and snarling krautrock echoing the kosmische stylings of The Silver Globe with the punk urgency of 80s domestic-synth pop. Featuring four brand new songs, three exclusive instrumental themes (including a commissioned theme from an American vampire film) and three new collaborative re-workings/duets based on tracks from The Silver Globe, this extensive package harbours work from Tom Furse (The Horrors), Andy Votel, Suzanne Ciani, members of Demdike Stare and original Silver Globe inhabitant Pete J. Phillipson. Substantiated by other extra format editions, including a silver vinyl version of The Silver Globe, a series of compact cassettes and a single release of standout robotic roller rink track Don’t Take My Soul (presented digitally as well as a split single with Bird Records label mate Tender Prey) Jane’s expanded Silver Globe/Amber Light project reciprocates the positive energy shared by her loyal readership and a wide host of new converts who have allowed Jane’s self-sufficient songs and synthetic soundscapes to flourish on he cusp of 2014/2015. Showing little signs of slowing down, Jane Weaver alongside her Bird Records family looks set for an airborne year. The Silver Globe is still turning and catching many a siege in its electric rays.

2. I Need A Connection

Various – Coxsone’s Music 2
Wednesday, May 25th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Coxsone’s Music 2

Image: 1604284 This is the second collection to bring together many of the visionary producer Clement ‘Sir Coxsone’ Dodd’s early recordings made with Jamaica’s most exciting young artists and musicians who helped define the world of reggae music over the decades following Jamaican Independence.

These recordings were made when Sir Coxsone ruled the dancehalls of Kingston in the late 1950s and early 1960s with his number one Downbeat Sound System, where songs were tested out on dub plates at a dance to see a crowd’s reaction – the most popular of which were then released commercially.

Featuring early material by Roland Alphonso, Don Drummond, Tommy McCook (all of whom would form The Skatalites), Toots and The Maytals, young singers such as Bob Marley and The Wailers, Delroy Wilson, Owen Gray all captured in their formative days.

The music here spans a wealth of styles – Jamaican rhythm and blues, jazz, gospel, proto-ska, Rastafarian – all of which were drawn upon to create the future sounds of Jamaican reggae that Sir Coxsone and the artists featured would soon create at Studio One which opened its doors in 1963.

DMX Crew – You Exist
Friday, January 22nd, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on DMX Crew – You Exist

Image: 1601821 Hypercolour proudly announce the latest long player from UK stalwart, Ed DMX AKA DMX Krew, the visionary British electronic producer who has been responsible for a slew of excellent releases for labels like Rephlex, Spectral Sound, Permanent Vacation and his own Breakin’ Records and Fresh Up Records since the mid 1990s.

‘You Exist’ is DMX Krew’s debut appearance on Hypercolour, and as expected the record features nine tracks of beautifully crafted, melodic electronic sounds. From the opener ‘Spiritual Encounter’, DMX sets the tone perfectly with oodles of pitch perfect synth riffs and driving drums, working his way through snappy and bright pop moments like ‘Hard Copy’ to more melancholic, darker cuts like ‘Computational Paradigm Shift’. DMX breezes in and out of electro techno territory to more contemplative IDM vibes with ease, testimony to the guy’s talent (that’s also seen him wear the hat of over 10 aliases throughout his career to date).

‘You Exist’ captures a very true and genuine musical form, produced and delivered with love from one of the scene’s unsung heroes, and makes it a great companion piece to another Hypercolour released album from similar stock (take your pick from Luke Vibert’s 2014 ‘Ridmik’ album or his latest Kerrier District LP). A consistent and engaging album then from DMX Krew that will pleasure the ear buds of discerning listeners everywhere.

TRACKLIST
1. Spiritual Encounter
2. Bombay Mix
3. Hard Copy
4. Dark Rider
5. Daylight Saving
6. Woolly Hat
7. Parallel Universes
8. Computational Paradigm Shift

DJ Soko – Domino Effect (Colored Vinyl)
Friday, July 10th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on DJ Soko – Domino Effect (Colored Vinyl)

Image: 1597875 Michigan native DJ Soko is part of a long line of great technical DJ’s, musical innovators, curators and those who broke key artists and introduced acts that forever changed the landscape of the music scene. Soko’s ear and ability to put emcees in position for them to shine over the perfect production is never more evident than it is on his debut project released on his imprint Left Of Center. DJ Soko uses his years coming up in the Detroit scene, his experiences DJ’ing in his current home (the planet of Brooklyn, NY) then blends both of those worlds together seamlessly. The end result is a gritty, boom bap Rap album that is equally as soulful and introspective as it is rooted in a blue collar lyrical Hip-Hop aesthetic. “Domino Effect” is ultimately brought together by Soko’s deft cuts and scratches which elevate each composition and make them resonate with listeners even further.

DJ Soko picked from the best and brightest among his immediate circle of associates, including his crew members The Left (Apollo Brown & Journalist 103). Soko reached out to groups like Clear Soul Forces and Ugly Heroes in addition to heavy hitters and veterans like Guilty Simpson, Finale, Marvwon, Kaimbr, Hassaan Mackey and Rasheed Chappell all the way down to up and comers like Nolan The Ninja, Stryfe and Jae Musick then matched them up with production harder than frozen over sidewalks in February provided by Apollo Brown, Def Dee, Newstalgia, Slimkat78 and NAMELESS amongst others. “Domino Effect” refers to when an event sets off a chain reaction of events or by-products that grow progressively larger and larger in scope over time.

Each beat sets the stage for the emcees. Each verse sets up the next verse and ramps up the level of lyricism. Each one of DJ Soko’s scratches push the beat and lyrics forward even further. This happens song after song over the entire project until the final product stands out amongst an era of disposable music. “The Domino Effect” is about seeking to make timeless art in hopes that propels the next project then another thus creating a much larger domino effect which spreads until it results in better quality music being released across the board. Just press play and watch what happens next…Album available August 21st, 2015 on Soko’s Left Of Center imprint, distributed through Fat Beats.

Thursday, May 14th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Dense & Pika – Lynn EP

Image: 1597281 Alex Jones brings his Dense & Pika project to home base on the ‘Lynn’ EP, delivering, alongside partner Chris Spero, a storming 4 track single for Hypercolour.

Tracklisting
A1. Lynn (Original Mix)
A2. Tantrum (Original Mix)
B1. Sycophant (Original Mix)
B2. Hitting The Ceiling (Original Mix)

Alex Jones brings his Dense & Pika project to home base on the ‘Lynn’ EP, delivering, alongside partner Chris Spero, a storming 4 track single for Hypercolour. After a hugely successful 12 months touring the live/DJ hybrid D&P show around the globe, the single is remarkably their very first release for the label.

‘Lynn’ carries all the trademarks of the Dense & Pika sound that has become the signature style on a quartet of well-received singles for Scuba’s Hotflush label. The punchy and brooding backbeat springs into life with vocal stabs, drop outs, reverse FX and industrial sized glitches, whilst keeping an uber tight production that will no doubt hold its place in the ever popular D&P shows.

Elsewhere on the EP, ‘Tantrum’ pumps like a vintage piece of EBM (that’s electronic body music to you and I), evoking shades of Nitzer Ebb and other 80s exponents of the mechanical funk sound, whilst ‘Sycophant’ is another show stopper, its grizzly bassline and persistent cowbell action is interwoven with pitch shifting synths and sci-fi loaded effects.

EP closer, ‘Hitting The Ceiling’ shows no sign of softening the sound, with a speaker shattering kick drum and wooly hats, an ominous vocal stab and supernatural synths nicely wrapping up this great quartet of tracks from one of the UK’s hottest techno talents right now….

Outboxx – Under The Lights EP
Tuesday, May 5th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Outboxx – Under The Lights EP

Image: 1596978 Futureboogie present the new ep Under The Lights from Outboxx.

A1. Day One (Original Mix)
A2. Under The Lights(Original Mix)
B1. Gift Of Life feat. Naomi Jeremy(Original Mix)
B2. Closing Titles (Original Mix)

Back in 2013, Futureboogie released The Fade EP by Outboxx, a record that received critical acclaim from the who’s who of music press, helping to propel Outboxx on the upward trajectory they’ve managed to maintain since those early releases. Unsurprisingly, Futureboogie are delighted to get the pair back for more.

Having developed their sound in the two years since, the pair has refined the raw ingredients of those records to show a combined maturity beyond their collective years. Previously the pair of producers (Matthew Lambert and Jake “Hodge” Martin) have released music on respected independent imprints such as BRSTL, Idle Hands, Well Rounded Records and Local Talk, honing their analogue rich sound that touches on the hard edge of drum machine rhythms crafted by Hodge and the harmonic, jazz soaked embellishments from Lambert on Keys.

‘Day One’ opens with the sound of a string sample drifting behind warm drums to beautifully open up proceedings. As the track develops with an explosion of shuffling hi hats, the main hook enters with more than a nod to the classic Acid basslines of a 303, built to hypnotize dancers into the early hours with subtle simplicity.

The EP’s title track ‘Under The Lights’ shows the pairs appreciation of Disco, with overdriven drums and a dotting bassline setting the feel. As the track develops, elements of Detroit enter the picture, with more string samples setting the key, and further allowing Lambert to contribute more of his signature Jazz licks as the track winds down to an unwanted close.

‘Gift of Life’ features the always-beautiful vocal contributions from long-term collaborator, Naomi Jeremy. Having featured on some of their most memorable releases to date, Jeremy’s vocals again add a complexity often found in Jazz, but with the drum machine funk of 90’s House, creating a sound that blurs the lines between sampling and original composition, uniquely, as only Outboxx can.

The record ends on the appropriately named ‘Closing Titles’, a track seemingly built to allow Lambert the opportunity to show his prowess and mastery of melody and harmony. Creeping basslines and warm chords mix with looped drum machine rhythms to wind down the release elegantly, showing the pairs versatility and understanding of each other’s strengths.

Selected DJ reactions
Moxie (Radio1) – Always look forward to hearing music from Outboxx, they come correct and make house music I really love, supporting
Harri (Sub Club) – Day One and Closing Titles are my favourites here

J.Wiltshire – False Awakening
Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on J.Wiltshire – False Awakening

Image: 1596717 J. Wiltshire returns with his new single False Awakening on Hypercolour.

TRACKLIST

A1. False Awakening (Original Mix)
A2. False Awakening (Clubby Tool Mix)
B1. False Awakening (Tuff City Kids Remix)
B2. False Awakening (Tuff City Kids Dub Copy)

J. Wiltshire follows up 2013’s Hypercolour single, “How It Is” with an offering that’s quite a leap from his seductive deep house sound, gracing us with a hugely mature sounding slice of brooding electro body popping bizzness!

In its Original Mix, “False Awakening” opens with delicate pizzicato synth plucks over a deadly electro-tinged beat that gets warped and crushed as dense sweeping strings and digital glitches come tumbling down on the unfolding arrangement. Like a neo-classical Underground Resistance, a funky as you like bass-line heralds in a discordant and haunting vocal line, which really ramps up the melancholic mood. All the while, the futuristic beat really propels this track along at an urgent pace. On his “Clubby Tool Mix”, Wiltshire digs into the mechanics of the track, slapping resonators on the drums and further manipulating the sound with some clever studio trickery.

Tuff City Kids, AKA Gerd Janson and Phillip Lauer, come fresh from singles on Permanent Vacation and remixes for Numbers, Crème Organisation and Visionquest with their take on “False Awakening”. TCK come out guns a blazing with a heavy kick and abrasive hats, looping a fragment on the vocal whilst the stabby bass and 909 hats set the heady vibe here. A growling synth line unfurls and the remix pounds hard and heavy, a little melodic organ line its only respite from the pummeling groove. The duo throw in a beats mix, the “Dub Copy”, just like the old days, as a little tool to keep us all happy, job done!

Lauer – Borndom (2LP+CD)
Friday, March 27th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Lauer – Borndom (2LP+CD)

Image: 1595643 The first cut may be the deepest, but the second hurts the most!

It might be commonplace, but it holds some self-evident truth for the return of Lauer – to the album format that is. Three years after his debut “Phillips” on Running Back, the melody man from the outback of Frankfurt am Main presents Borndom: a thirteen track trip through a universe that is specifically his. Far from being a stranger to Permanent Vacation with singles like Delta NRG or Donnerlake being heralds of the things to come, it provides a home to their spiritual kinship and ethos.

Rooted in pop music and mixed with the reactance and sound aesthetics of punk, while wearing dancing shoes, you’ll be hard pressed to find lots of contemporaries that till a similar field. With a sound signature, a melodic repertoire and an emotional quality that is immediately recognizable, often yearns for vocals (a point of criticism that is minimized as you will see in just a second) and is if nothing else highly individualised, Lauer might one of the thoroughly honest indie dancers out there.

Unlike his other adventures in club music (hardly lets a week go by without a release or a remix for the most critically-acclaimed outfits on this planets either on his own, under the Hotel Lauer umbrella or as being part of Tuff City Kids), his second album makes the most use of these moments and that specific stylistic. Of course, you can find typical high flying Lauer moments like “Mausback” or “Hump Acid” or the Nu-Groove-esque desire dubbed“Pal Oh”, but the image of a singer-songwriter with a midi-kit prevails. There are miniatures like “Carpet”, the blissful melancholia of the opener “Crewners”, the album’s title track that sounds like the lost soundtrack to an eighties sitcom about college nerds and maybe most startling, Borndom’s vocal features. “ESC” (feat. Jasnau) being the proverbial cold wave mating dance in the neon light, while the two songs with Ela take care of romantic highs and lows.

Sounding like something that a band of the past made to be heard in a very distant future, Phillip Lauer’s second album sees him at his most matured and endured: Borndom! Available from 08.05.2015

PBR Streetgang & X-Press 2 – Cosine (feat. Lauer / A Sagittariun RMXs)
Friday, February 20th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on PBR Streetgang & X-Press 2 – Cosine (feat. Lauer / A Sagittariun RMXs)

Image: 1595544 Two British house music duos team up for an almighty ‘ménage à quatre’ on Futureboogie this March, ably assisted by remixes from Lauer and A Sagittariun.

A1. Cosine (Original Mix)
A2. Key Free (Original Mix)
B1. Cosine (Lauer Remix)
B2. Cosine (A Sagittariun Futuro Re-Dream)

PBR Streetgang are no strangers to Futureboogie, having released the 2012 ‘Double Boogie’ EP and are regular supporters of the label over the years. The Leeds based pair have racked up some great singles for the likes of Throne Of Blood, 2020 Vision and Wolf Music.

And X-Press 2 will need little introduction, suffice to say that Rocky & Diesel have been at the forefront of the house music scene since day dot, and a career that has spanned underground gems for Junior Boys Own to chart hits for Skint and so many great musical moments in between.

‘Cosine’ in its Original Mix perfectly encapsulates the sound of both artists, X-Press 2 bringing the dark and brooding atmosphere to the table whilst PBR indulge in some cosmically tantric arpeggiated synth work and a fathoms deep bassline, whilst vocal refrains and distant bells create the ambience. A very heavy mood piece from the team here!

The arp riff stays center stage for the two accompanying remixes of ‘Cosine’. Lauer, AKA Philip Lauer, goes for a more ethereal and piano driven take. As one half of Tuff City Kids (with Gerd Janson) and solo artist in his own right for labels like Running Back, Permanent Vacation and Beats In Space, Lauer provides a glossy and smooth re-rub of the original that demands for late night action!

The second remix of ‘Cosine’ comes from A Sagittairun, the Bristol based techno cosmonaut who has been releasing a myriad of deep techno and ambient dub sounds on his Elastic Dreams imprint. The ‘Futuro Re-Dream’ ramp up the energy levels, and takes the beat down electro alley, brimming with Detroit techno tropes, breakbeats and rave-esque bass for a funky & futuristic flashback moment.

‘Key Free’, the second original production from PBR & X-Press 2, goes super-size, with the melodious free wheeling keys providing the jack work over the industrious drum pattern. Deadly synth sweeps bring the depth as the booming kick and ricocheting claps push this one further into techno territory whilst retaining the swing and melody of another classy Futureboogie release.

James Zabiela – Cosine is wicked, digging the electro of A Sagittariun Mix

Lonely Boy – I Like Disco
Tuesday, January 20th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Lonely Boy – I Like Disco

Image: 1594845 Futureboogie open their 2015 account with this killer slab of sophisticated twisted disco from Lonely Boy, AKA Joshua Heath.

TRACKLIST
A1. I Like Disco (Original Mix)
B1. I Like Disco (The Emperor Machine
Disco To Go Special Dub Mix)
B2. The Subtle Frenzy (Original Mix)

Futureboogie open their 2015 account with this killer slab of
sophisticated twisted disco from Lonely Boy, AKA Joshua Heath.
The Californian producer has a track record for finely crafted house
music on labels like Miguel Migs’ Salted Music and the Inland
Knights’ Drop Music. His Lonely Boy moniker has yielded music for
Culprit and Winding Road, and this FBR release comes backed with
an epic remix from The Emperor Machine.
An ode to a love affair with the original vintage disco sounds, with its
sophisticated bass and clean drums echoing shades of classic
Prelude tunes of yesteryear, ‘I Like Disco’ is a spot on nod to the
authentic sound that seemingly will never be out of fashion. Its
simple male rephrase reminds us just what we’re dealing with here,
as the soft keys play call and response with that funky bass riff, and
thick, rising pads create the drama.
The Emperor Machine rocks up on the remix, fresh from a period of
intense activity, including albums for Southern Fired and the now
defunct D.C. Recordings. The former Bizarre Inc. and Chicken Lips
has also been busy remixing the likes of Booka Shade, Erol Alkan
and Daft Punk, so a real scoop to get him on Futureboogie.
Weighing in at over 10 minutes, the good Emperor builds a dubtastic
version, stretching out the good groove and bringing it back to
the basics. A playful remix with brain scrambling metallic flanging,
stuttering bass, electro-funk synths and heaps of dubby delays, a
monster of a remix!
‘The Subtle Frenzy’ continues the quality vibes with an arpeggio
synth that works it way around your brain and moody pads and
wonky keys that build the atmosphere a treat. A monster electrofunk
workout with a heavyweight growling bassline that continually
pushes the track into a ‘subtle frenzy’.
Digital bonus track, ‘Take Your Time’ slows down the pace with an
orgy of synthesizers and chugging beats, a perfect wind
down/sunset/sunrise (circle where appropriate) moment! A class cut
that shows the versatility of Lonely Boy’s productions…

Gazelle Twin & Tom Demac – Belly Of The Beast / GUTS (Remixes)
Wednesday, January 7th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Gazelle Twin & Tom Demac – Belly Of The Beast / GUTS (Remixes)

Image: 1594522 Meeting of mutual minds collide as Tom Demac & Gazelle Twim team up for the Belly Of The Beast / GUTS (Remixes) 12′ single.

A1. Belly Of The Beast (Tom Demac Remix)
B1. GUTS (Tom Demac Remix)

Elizabeth Bernholz, AKA Gazelle Twin, has been making some serious statements of intent over the last couple of years, making some uncompromising music in uncompromising times. Her 2014 album, “Unflesh” was a demonic and unsettling collection of dark electronica and autobiographical themes that was judged by The Quietus as their ‘Album Of The Year’. A previous debut album and singles have surfaced on the Anti-Ghost Moon Ray Records label and the Philly based Sugarcane Records label.

Hypercolour mainstay, Tom Demac, has also been a busy, cutting some deadly electro techno of late for labels like Aus Music and Drumcode, and remixing for Luke Vibert, BANKS and Tosca.

These two vociferous artists collide on this HypeLTD release, a meeting of mutual minds from the nether reaches of electronic music’s vast landscape. Demac tears down the Gazelle Twin original compositions and rebuilds them with feverish candor. “Belly of The Beast” pounds hard with rubbery percussion and rattling hats like chains, the Gazelle Twin chants her mantra “I’ll beat them all at their own game…” Demac’s padded cell like production is most definitely some of the best work we’ve heard him do to date, and this dark sound aesthetic spills into his take on “GUTS”. Like an electro take on a John Carpenter score, Demac carves out a futuristic and desolate take on Gazelle Twin’s celebration of urge resistance and taking pleasure in the complexity of the mind.

Selected DJ reactions:
Eats Everything – Massive! More of this please Mr. Demac
Rob Booth (Houndstooth) – 10/10 this release! Big!
JD Twitch (Optimo) – Really good, both tracks!
Mano Le Tough (Innervisions) – Belly of The Beast sounds good
James Zabiela – Both amazing, but GUTS is super fresh
